Pin cushions.

2013-11-29

I ordered new fabric for wrist pin cushions a couple of weeks ago, and yesterday I started on four. I only have four wrist bands left, and I need to order some more. The store I got them at has such expensive shipping so I’m hesitating, I hate paying almost as much in shipping as the item itself. I haven’t found any other shop yet though.

Two cats with feathers and a hat, a scared braced girl and a very sad apple.

Our neighbours are rebuilding their house┬á and it seems they just started. There’s a machine humming in a very annoying sound, when it goes quiet it’s like my brain goes ‘aaahhh’. I’m not looking forward to this..


Kids sweaters.

2013-11-10

I’ve been sewing some kids sweaters this week. I used one of the sweater patterns from my Ottobre pattern books, but I changed the pattern a bit. I’m sewing on the neckline and cuffs in another way, and I added a bottom cuff.

It’s quite fun to think about that I learned how to adjust patterns and such from sewing doll clothes. It’s a really good scale to learn on.

Any ways, since I got my new fabrics on Friday I’ve been itching to try it. While I waited for them to dry after a wash I made a really cosy apple sweater, in size 104. It has a fluffy inside, so it’s a perfect autumn/winter sweater.

The second sweater is a red striped raglan with a circus scene which is just lovely. The combinations of colours are so darn neat. Can’t wait to do more versions of it, next up is one with black/white sleeves. This is in size 92.
